DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Construction on a new building at the Air Force museum in southwest Ohio will force temporary closure of the museum’s Missile and Space Gallery.

The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force near Dayton says the gallery will be closed for about five months beginning Dec. 8.

Some exterior wall panels of the gallery are being removed to form new entrances for the new building.

The museum’s fourth building is scheduled to open to the public in spring 2016. It will be the new home of the museum’s presidential aircraft, research and development, space and global reach exhibits.

Some missile and space exhibits including the Apollo 15 command module will still be accessible during the closure, and the museum also offers a virtual, 3-D tour.
